    So instead of just jail time why not Do an extensive rehab program. Teach them a trade or something. Don’t just lock them up or give ridiculous condition of release. Which if any one hasn’t notice a large percentage don’t follow. Then end up right back in
    Same situation. Yes they need to be punished for the crime. But since tax payers fund prison shouldn’t there be a better outcome than making the criminal worse than when they went to jail? Just a thought
